1. He explains that the rapid decline of healthcare costs have given us the most rapide rate of deficit decline since WWII.
2. Overall it would decrease the deficit percentate by 1.8 from the base line of 3.4%.
3. The president has focused on lowering medical cost which mainly deals with mandatory spending (medicare and medicaid) therefore if we can decrease those costs then it leaves more room in our budget for discretionary spending. Once that money is opened up, then one proposed idea is to help children in their early eduction by opening up 100,000 slots in these new education programs.
4. Healthcare cost are going down because we are withholding care, short-staffing hospitals, and having drug shortages. It is made to sound like that the decreases in medical costs is a benefit, however, it has never been more expensive and filled with reddd-tape. However pro in the long run would be the greatly decrease deficit rate and hopefully useful programs from the freed budget.
1) He wants it to be more balanced and adjusted for genders and to raise funding. He uses it because his proposal probably wouldn't pass in congress.
2) He used the order because he probably believe that his proposal couldn't make it through congress. Therefore, it will only last as long as his presidency like other executive statements.
3) Some people say that the president has and is using to much power; and also that he is unnecessarily raising cost and burdens on companies.
4/5) He has not used executive orders in the realm of gay rights. Because that is an imagine killer as well as tremor to the people. He would be taking full responsibility on that order, it is not like congress where if it passes it would majority rule.
Video on msnbc.com: The age-old practice of politicians re-drawing Congressional districts to find friendly voters, or, gerrymandering, has allowed members of the House of Representatives from both sides of the aisle to stay in power regardless of...
1) Gerrymandering is the reapportionment of districts in a state to insure that one's party has a majority or create lines that section off your opposition into a single district. It was first used by Elbridge Gerry.
2) These redraw districts have wonky lines sometimes connect by a thin single strip or they are very oddly shape with very little consistence.
3) The districts are reapportioned every 10 years after the census by the state legislature.
4) People argue that reapportionment should be solely based on population and geographical features.
5) It could possibility kick many incumbents in both parties out of offices or make it much more difficult for them to be reelected.
6) I don't think that they are very correlated and if so there isn't really isn't a simple solution. Yes, one could say that it causes a lot of controversy, however, it is equally possible that the removal of gerrymandering all together could cause even more political turmoil.
1) They are looking for a candidate to lay out who they are and they want and to handle the stress of a nation. And ultimately I believe that this goes for either side: democrat or republican.
2) He is focusing on their advantages and disadvantages in the coming race as well as where they might stack up compared to their party brothers/sisters.
3) I think it means that the presidential campaign is the same old stressful fasted paced race that seems to never really change even with a changing world. I think that it implies that even with it all its innovations that government is still the same stress filled place where presidents are challenged to show the public who they are and what they will do with the power of a nation.
4) Of course there is an advantage; you immediately have more of a public image. However, what that image is saying can be for the better or the worst and you could also become a more readily available target for your competitors.
Texas remains a Republican-leaning state because its white residents are becoming increasingly Republican and its large Hispanic population, though solidly Democratic, is less so than Hispanics nationally.
1) The Democrats are hopeful because if the realignment occurs it will overturn the largest republic state and possibly turn the governorship over to them. It goes along with minority majority because whites will no longer be the largest % therefore it allows for the equaling of the political platform.
2) Whites tend to vote more republican usually around 61%, while Hispanics usually vote democrat usually around 46%.However Texan Hispanics rates for voting republican are on the rise as well.
3) The reason for the slow process of realignment is that although statics show the large percent that support democrats the groups that support them have a very low voter turn out compared to the white portion of the population.
4) There was a large population from every state. There were translated versions for non-English speaking citizens. It was half and half from cell phone and land-line surveys. It was completely random. Weight and made sure to gather data from all demographics.
1. Liberals have been more in favor of his decisions, since his decisions consist of compromising on many issues. Such as the Voting Rights act.
2. It is the way a case was ruled on previously and used there after for similar cases. Rather than giving a opinion which detest a policy, he is comprising saying let's follow the precedent set before us.
3. The president could try to appoint a new solicitor general since his vote carrying % is very low. He could also try and make a plea for change from the courts or bypass the courts all together and take his problems to congress.
4. Justice Kennedy's vote is the "swing vote" because he was in the majority about 83%. There for his vote has one of the strongest pulls. He is also the split between the 4 liberals and 4 conservatives.
5.It is hard to tell but I would say yes. It seems that the reporter has a more dim view of what is going on in congress. The length could represent his frustrations and the sheer volume of quotes are used to rally people to his agenda. Yet it is insightful and represents both sides for the most part.
1) They are putting pressure on Democrats that will be up for reelection soon (mid-term elections). They believe that Dr. Murthy's strongs voice in gun control/regulations with cross-over in his role as surgen general.
2) It is a large concern because of mid-term elections; due to the possibility of democrats losing the majority in the senate. The ones most anexious are those in the more conservative states.
3) They must rework their strategy in hopes of putting Dr. Murthy in office. They will try and gain stronger support from key democratic leaders as well as be careful not to overestimate their support again.
4) It is a tough position. They could try a make a policy so that the surgen general can not interfere with gun control policy/regulation. They believe that their loss of steady support is most likely due to the up coming mid-term elections. So many canidates are worried about their constituents feeling these matters and loss of funding that could go with it.
1) The use of an electoral college is in article 1 section 2 of the constitution; and it is used to make sure everyone has an equal say as well as an equal chance to be elected.
2) Candidates will campaign in larger states that have more electoral votes rather than ones with very few. "Safe States" are those that are either usually always blue or red basically guaranteed votes. While "Swing States" are the ones where candidates really focus on because the state could go blue or red.
4) The vote is taken to the House of representatives and each states gets one vote.
5) I believe we should go by popular vote now. Information is so wide spread that an electoral system is no longer needed. It could also lead way to more independents running which in turn cause candidates to really focus on issues and other areas rather just swing states.
More Americans today are satisfied with where the nation stands on acceptance of gays and lesbians, federal taxes, and healthcare availability than were satisfied in 2001. But Americans' satisfaction with the economy has declined.
1) The author seems to place a lot of emphasis on the war on terrorism as the cause to the dissatisfaction of the nation's economy at the. However, I believe that during that initial war shock that most people were being very patriotic and therefore I don't think I was the largest factor of the nation's dissatisfaction.
2) Most coincide with their own parties agenda, however, there are some surprising categories where the democrats and republicans agree such as the quality of Medicare which has been a very hot issue. One would figure the democrats would be much less satisfied.
3) Some public policies that the republicans will being supporting is the nation's military strength, national energy crisis, the out-lawing of abortion. While democrats will be in opposition to most of those, and giving more aide to the needy, and the fight for the gay/lesbian community.
4) It could impact the data greatly, because most of the percentages are very close. So 4% could make some years go as unchanged or greatly close the gap. Also it could mean that there is a possibly that the public is 4% more satisfied in general or even more dissatisfied with the government's polies.
